Il co-fondatore Larry Page (che fondò Google assieme all’attuale socio Sergey Brin) ha preso il posto di Eric Schmidt come CEO, per migliorare la struttura gestionale dell’azienda.
Schmidt a questo punto ricoprirà il ruolo di “Executive Chairman“, dedicandosi principalmente a offerte, partnership, relazioni coi clienti business, ecc…
I questo Tweet inoltre Mr. Schmidt esprime la sua totale fiducia in questo passaggio di poteri (che sarà effettivo a partire dal 4 Aprile) dicendo “Day-to-day adult supervision no longer needed!”
Il fondatore di Google è quindi pronto a prendere le redini!
A seguire le parole di Eric Schmidt:
We’ve been talking about how best to simplify our management structure and speed up decision making for a long time. By clarifying our individual roles we’ll create clearer responsibility and accountability at the top of the company. In my clear opinion, Larry is ready to lead and I’m excited about working with both him and Sergey for a long time to come.
E di Larry Page:
Eric has clearly done an outstanding job leading Google for the last decade. The results speak for themselves. There is no other CEO in the world that could have kept such headstrong founders so deeply involved and still run the business so brilliantly. Eric is a tremendous leader and I have learned innumerable lessons from him. His advice and efforts will be invaluable to me as I start in this new role. Google still has such incredible opportunity–we are only at the beginning and I can’t wait to get started.
